I slice my driver but not my other clubs as well. If you're the same as me . . if you hopped on a trackman you would see that you slice all your clubs but that as the shaft gets longer and the loft gets less, the slice gets more and more apparent. Whereas you might not notice it at all on a 5 iron, you will probably see it, at least a little, in your 5w or 3w. Do you find your shots go a bit high and short? If you really only slice your driver and swing your other...
If you want to try something funny and have a little bit of acting ability . .the next time you take a lesson ask the teacher, seriously, what he thinks your potential is. Ask him if he thinks you can learn to play competitive golf . .ask him if he thinks that if you practice hard enough, you could play on a mini-tour or reach a low single digit handicap. Chances are he will not say "No way you loser!", which, of course, would be the truth. I'm sure your son has...
Anybody watching this? I sort of am but it's kind of boring - even for me, a self-admitted golf-watching nut.
A lot of people have mentioned the Ping G series but I am a high handicapper and just got a set of used I5's and I don't find them hard to hit at all. I really like them, look and feel, over the G15's that I tried. My old irons were ~20 yr old ping eye2 copies and, after an adjustment period, I definitely hit the I5's a lot better than I was hitting my old irons. If you're trying clubs, maybe give the I series a try as well.
Me too, about 2 hours early - same deal here in Northern Cal. It was actually not a good day to skip out but we just don't get enough days like this. Played crappy knowing my inbox and voicemail was filling up. Going to go out again today :)
This will be my first winter in the nw. I've been up to visit before and tried to play golf in March and April and the public course was just ridiculous. I saw a guy playing in rubber knee boots. I laughed . . .at first. Balls were plugging so deep in the fairways that they were hard to find . .let alone clean and replace . assuming you could find a piece of ground within 100 yards firm enough to hit off. It's like trying to hit balls off chocolate pudding. I...
I had horrible rounds last week. It sucks when you're hitting it bad and you feel like you don't know why. I do 2 things to try and help me minimize the carnage. Firstly, as has been said, club down. When I'm hitting it really bad I'll hit nothing bigger than a 5 iron - even on par 5's. The other one is don't look away in disgust when you hit a bad shot. It's hard to do but force yourself to watch that sucker fly into the trees or wherever and get a visual...
ha - that's a funny picture just begging to be photoshopped. I have to side with the "looks kind of gay" group because well . .it does to me. Not that I think Camillo is (have no idea) nor do I think that was the intention of the photo . . but it is what it is (which is gay). I disagree with these types of photos for PGA or LPGA. A shirt-off pose to show physique is fine but this sort of staged sillyness just cheapens the athlete, in my opinion. Looks more like a...
Although I have a head movement issue I really don't think about trying to keep my head still. It's kind of hard to explain but my good shots kind of have a "certain feeling" through the downswing which is not about any specific thing. It's the weight moving forward, the body sort of "locking" into an angle (feeling of turn vs sway), the club dropping into plane . .it feels "strong" vs "weak". When I make a bad swing, any of about 5-6 things could happen (head...
I understand his not taking a PGA card. He will play in whatever tournaments he wants without having to play in the required 15 - that makes sense. However, even though he is quoting his manager - he sounds like kind of a dick when he says: 'Why would you take up membership in the States when you've been the most successful player in the world this year despite being injured and still have a great chance to go to world No 1?' and "I don't want to be dictated...
